It's Charlotte Fashion Week this week, beginning August 25th and running through August 29th. Fashionistas get ready to "get your fashion on" for the hottest and newest styles of the season! If you thought Fashion Weeks happened only in cities like New York, Milan, Paris, London... well you couldn't be more wrong! Charlotte has its very own fashion week each year and 2015 is the fifth year that Charlotte Seen is hosting Charlotte Fashion Week.
Both local and international designers will be competing for top spots in hair, makeup, models, designer fashion, bridal fashion, and emerging designer fashion. You'll have a chance to see fashion offerings from 50 designers worn by some 400 models from Wednesday, August 26th through Friday, August 29th. The week-long event will be capped off by the highly anticipated "Fashion Seen Ball – A Fabulous Fashion Ball and Awards." The evening will include a "100 Years of Fashion Cinema - A Tribute to the Legends of Yesteryears to the Stars of Today," a luxurious fashion Sshow, live entertainment, dancing, heavy hors d’ oeuvres, cocktails and desserts. For more information visit Charlotte Seen Fashion Week's Facebook Page.
And while you're enjoying all the fashion fun this week, you'll also be supporting a great cause, as a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Hospitality House of Charlotte's lodging program, which provides shelter and support to families with relatives receiving medical treatment for serious illnesses in Charlotte. Since 1985 Hospitality House of Charlotte has sheltered more than 50,000 guests who have travelled to Charlotte from 49 states and from over 35 countries.
All events will take place at the Charlotte Country Club at 2465 Mecklenburg Avenue in Charlotte's Myer's Park area.
Ticket prices range from $25-50. Click here to order tickets for Charlotte Seen Fashion Week.
